Russell Brand publicly threw his support behind Barack Obama at the MTV Video Music Awards in LA this weekend with some colourful language.

Some people, I think they're called racists, say America is not ready for a black president. But I know America to be a forward-thinking country because otherwise why would you have let that retarded cowboy fella be president for eight years. We were very impressed. We thought it was nice of you to let him have a go, because, in England, he wouldn't be trusted with a pair of scissors.

You've gotta love British exports. Still, he's completely right of course.


If any further proof of Brand's craziness were ever needed, he also made a comparison of Britney Spears as a messiah figure:

Consider this the resurrection of Britney Spears. If there was a female Christ, it's Britney.

Like, huh?
